Spinach & Pinenut Stuffed Mushrooms

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

I love a good mushie, in fact, cooked mushrooms would be right up the top of my favourite food list! They just make everything taste better, especially breakfast. I love stuffed mushrooms too, but often I forget about making them, so we don't have them that often. I have no idea why, I even have a toddler that scrambles to steal all the chopped mushrooms before I cook them!

Earlier this week Joel put together a little BBQ stuffed mushroom recipe and then graciously allowed me to steal it to put on here and pretend that I am really good at cooking and stuff! Thanks honey!



7 large BBQ or Portabello Mushrooms
1/2 Cup of sunflower seeds (ground)
1/2 Cup pine nuts
1/2 cup of plain crackers
200g baby spinach
A large handful of basil
1 Large tomato diced
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese to top

Snap off the mushroom stalks and chop them up
Crush (or use food processor) the crackers up into crumbs
Do the same with the sunflower seeds and pinenuts
Slightly steam the baby spinach
Add the basil to the steamer for the last minute
Put everything apart from the Parmesan in the food processor until blended well in a chunky paste
Fill up the mushrooms with the paste and top with grated Parmesan and a basil leaf to top.
Cook in oven or covered BBQ (grill) for 10-15 minutes or they look like this below! You can serve them on a lovely piece of sourdough toast as well if you like!

So, so easy!
You know me, I love the easy meal!
